Right wing flaperon arms riveted into place. I'm building plans only so I can drill these to #21 for solid rivets.

it looks good...I like the look of solid rivets. Just wondered if there was a specific reason you had. I'm thinking of doing the same in some areas

Scott Ehni says that using solid rivets exclusively on his CH-701 saves about 14 pounds.

 I'm using solid rivets on the wing skeleton.  Why, Because I have them? Maybe I'm trying to save a little weight? Save a little bit of money. No one good reason other than I can.

Just curious...what was the rationale for using solid rivets here?
